TotalBoat Thixo Gap Control Structural Epoxy Adhesive
TotalBoat Thixo Gap Control is specifically formulated for structural bonding applications. This two-component, fast-setting thickened epoxy adhesive prevents too much epoxy from squeezing out when clamping pressure is applied.
It contains tiny glass spacer beads that ensure a minimum bond line thickness of .02 inches, controlling the gap to keep material thickness constant while curing. Thixo Gap Control is great for gluing laminates & skins, and ideal for high-strength deck to hull bonding.
Available in a convenient 450 ml cartridge with 2 static mixing tips. Extra tips are available in 2-packs & quantities of 12 or 60.
NOTE: To dispense Thixo Gap, you'll need our PRO Gun (see dropdown menu), a manual, two-component applicator with a powerful 26:1 trigger ratio that lets you lay down a perfect bead exactly where you need it.

Can this product be used for bonding concrete and steel products? If not can you recommend a universal bonding adhesive that you carry. Thanks
It has not been tested on concrete but I suspect it would work. It will bond steel. Check out Pro-Set Adhesives: https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=1532
Not cheap but well worth it
This is a great adhesive and the delivery-mixing scheme cuts way down on the mess. Love this stuff.
Used for mast repair
I used to mix west System with additives to thicken it for repairs but Thixo is so much easier to use. Don't get me wrong, West is good stuff, but the measuring and mixing and thickeners are a pain compared to Thixo in a gun. I buy the "wood" version to repair my glued-up spruce mast seams. This is just as a strong adhesive filler for small cracks that happen, not the gluing up of the mast staves, though that might work too.
Love it so far!
Definitely going to buy the best (and strongest) caulk gun I can find. When the tube is warm, (I set it on top of the steamer tube when I was steaming white oak ribs) it works like magic. A little harder when tube is cooler. The product itself seems to work fantastic on everything I've tried it on so far.

Great product to work with!
I have used it on my Boston Whaler restoration. Won't sag....ideal for filling old screw holes.
While it's a pricey way to go, when you measure it against the time to mix and bag epoxy to squeeze out a fillet, you come out ahead. That's my justification...
THIXO Thickened Epoxy
This stuff is awesome. I use to mix my own but usually had it cure while still in the tube before I finished the job. No worries with the THIXO.
